They Saved The Most Brutal Hunger Games Movie For Last

The Hunger Games book and movie series has always been about resistance, and particularly about using the machinery and iconography of the oppressor to fight back. Katniss Everdeen is a creation of a violent, manipulative system, but she turns all of its symbolism against it. And in the final movie, Mockingjay Part 2,… »Friday 11:00am11/20/15 11:00am


Spectre is Way Too Ridiculous A Movie To Take Itself So Seriously

James Bond movies are generally ridiculous, although they run the gamut from Casino Royale to Moonraker. Spectre, the new one that’s out today, is definitely one of the more ridiculous of the bunch—but holds itself with a kind of overly grim dignity, like a teenage executioner. The good news? The action sequences are… »11/06/15 11:00am11/06/15 11:00am

Jem and the Holograms Fails in a Way That I've Never Seen a Movie Fail Before

Young people, right? They like young-people shit, like YouTube videos, Instagram selfies and crazy hair. If you hate young people but want to pander to them for some reason—like, if you have loathsome, foul-smelling stepchildren—you can always take them to see Jem and the Holograms. »10/23/15 11:00am10/23/15 11:00am

The Martian Is Hands Down The Best Thriller Of The Year

The New Maze Runner Movie Is Basically Pure Stupid Fun

The second entry in a dystopian series is always a challenge. The first installment usually has a simple hook—we fight in the arena, we deal with being the only person who has complex emotions, etc. And now, in the second outing... there’s more of the same. Or possibly, a whole lot more mythos. Either way, it’s not… »9/18/15 11:00am9/18/15 11:00am

Bloodsucking Bastards is the Office Horror Comedy We've Been Waiting For

Between What We Do in the Shadows and Bloodsucking Bastards, it’s an excellent time to be a fan of deadpan vampire comedies. The latter, which features Game of Thrones’ Pedro Pascal as the bloodthirsty new sales manager at a corporate office, boasts a clever script, a hilarious cast, and rivers of gore. What else do… »9/04/15 3:00pm9/04/15 3:00pm

Absolutely Anything's Biggest Crime Is Going Absolutely Nowhere

Sci-fi comedies rarely have a weight of expectation like Absolutely Anything does. A script 20 years in the making. The first movie from Monty Python’s Terry Jones in decades. A cast made up of British comedy icons. A premise that allows.... well, absolutely anything. And it fails to do anything significant (or funny)… »8/20/15 12:00pm8/20/15 12:00pm

Goku’s Worst Foe Is the Dragonball Z Franchise Itself in Resurrection F

The new Dragonball Z movie, titled Resurrection F, is really more of a remix than a resurrection. Or, better still, a greatest hits compilation, albeit one where the hits happen at light-speed and can destroy the planet. It’s a collection of everything you enjoy about DBZ, but it’s also all stuff you’ve seen before. »8/07/15 3:05pm8/07/15 3:05pm
